The show Gilmore Girls takes place in a make-believe town, that Amy Sherman-Palladino created, called Stars Hollow. Lorelai came from a wealthy family with everything open to her, but ended up in the small town in Conneticut. Through out the show you learn about how Stars Hollow was founded and how it was named. The Revolutionary War plays a frequent role in the town's past. But what really makes this town so special are the people living there and the businesses that are so very popular.
